Accessible Banking Options for Students

By Alexandra Lallemand

We all work hard for our money. Whether it may be a full-time, part-time or even seasonal job, we depend on our income to support our costly responsibilities. Fortunately, there are a few options to help stash your money in the right place.

One great banking company is Wells Fargo. I’ve been with this company for about four years and have been satisfied ever since. Paying my bills and making purchases online are extremely easy with Wells Fargo. An option to consider is opening a college checking and saving account.

Wells Fargo’s student program waives additional fees and is automatically linked to an overdraft protection service. They are also really great at detecting fraudulent transactions and notifies you right away if there is any suspicion. Banking with this company will give you piece of mind, just by knowing that they are specialist working around the clock to ensure your money is safe.

There are also apps for iPhone and Android users, which conventionally places banking right at your fingertips.

Suncoast Credit Union is another reliable bank. Similar to Wells Fargo, Suncoast provides students with a teen checking account. Once your account is set up, you can use your rewards debit card anywhere. There are no extra fees for ATM services or cashback options. You can also gain rewards points the more you use this debit card. Redeemable points can lead to prizes as well.
